Stories

My father was proud of his World War II service. He received full military honors at his funeral and I was honored to be presented his burial flag. After serving an additional year beyond the end of the war, my father got a job at NABISCO in Toledo, Ohio where he worked for many years. In 1968 he returned to Tennessee and became a logger because as he said, “I love the woods and I like to work.” Later he became a woodcutter who saw that the local elderly, shut-ins and widows always had a supply of wood at no cost. As a member of the Coker Creek Ruritan he devoted much time to visiting and delivering meals to those same shut-ins and widows. It seemed to me that he knew everyone in the country and he never was bashful about making the acquaintance of those he didn’t know. The more I discover about him the prouder I become; because of his kindness. In the fullness of time, my father became the invalid; his health deteriorated and he fell victim to Alzheimer’s, a combination that required around the clock attention. My sister cared for our father the last year of his life and said, “It was hard, but it was a blessing.” She also added, “Charles, our father was a good man.” Even in the depths of his disease he would say, “You know, complaining is just a bad habit.” I guess it impressed me because if I’m not careful, I am prone to complaining. At the end he had few worldly possessions but he had his faith in God and his reputation of kindness. “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” Proverbs 22:1
